Pokemon boss justifies Sword and Shield Pokedex limitations

Pokemon boss justifies Sword and Shield Pokedex limitations

Pokemon Sword and Shield's appearance at E3 2019 was somewhat marred by the reveal that the Pokemon you'll be able to use will be limited by the Galar region's Pokedex. Essentially, if you have a Pokemon that doesn't appear in the Galar Pokedex, you won't be able to transfer it over to Sword and Shield. As you might imagine, the internet's reaction to this news was pretty negative.

Final Fantasy VII remake will probably be on PlayStation 5 too

Final Fantasy VII remake will probably be on PlayStation 5 too

Now that Sony and Microsoft have both talked about their next consoles to some degree, it's clear that the next generation is nearly upon us. That little fact begs the question of what's going to happen with the games that are launching on current hardware right before these new consoles release. Will those games make the jump to the new consoles as well? In the case of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII remake at least, it sounds like there's a pretty good chance of that happening.

Nintendo Switch E3 2019: Every trailer from Nintendo’s E3 Direct

As it does every year, Nintendo made its big E3 2019 announcement by way of a special Nintendo Direct. The Direct clocked in at just around 40 minutes long and previewed a number of games that are coming to the console in the (hopefully) near future. If you missed the show, this is where you'll find all of the trailers that premiered during Nintendo's E3 Direct - every single one of them.

Konami TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the latest entry to the retro console race

Konami TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the latest entry to the retro console race

Nintendo, Sony, Sega, SNK, and even Atari have all put out their attempts at reviving old, beloved consoles and making them new. While Atari's VCS is a full-sized modern version of its iconic entertainment system, the rest have opted to shrink their revivals down in both size and the games they can play. Konami, who is probably better known for making games than any actual console, is jumping on the latter bandwagon with the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, a console that few might actually remember.

The Witcher 3, of all games, is coming to Switch this year

The Witcher 3, of all games, is coming to Switch this year

Given the Switch's less powerful hardware in comparison to its Xbox and PlayStation-branded competitors, there are some modern games that we wouldn't expect to receive Switch ports. For a lot of people, The Witcher 3 probably tops that list since it's such a graphics-intensive game. As it turns out, CD Projekt Red is bringing the game to Nintendo's hybrid platform anyway, despite its relatively underpowered hardware.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next two DLC characters revealed

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next two DLC characters revealed

As promised, E3 2019 brought the reveal of the next two DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo led its E3 Direct with news of the first one, which is the Hero from the Dragon Quest series. Though people who hate playing against sword characters will probably roll their eyes, adding Hero to Ultimate definitely makes sense given the impending launch of Dragon Quest XI on Switch.

Xbox Backward Compatibility adds last games as work on Scarlett begins

Xbox Backward Compatibility adds last games as work on Scarlett begins

They say that all good things must come to an end but Microsoft is making sure it won't end on a sad note. Xbox One's Backward Compatibility program surprised the industry for pulling off something some thought would be both technically infeasible and also a bad business move. Over that time, the program has added more than 600 titles from the original Xbox, a.k.a. the Xbox Classic, and the Xbox 360, becoming available to all generations of Xbox One consoles. Sadly, that library will no longer grow after this week but Microsoft promises not to worry because it'll be back soon.

Final Fantasy VIII is finally getting Remastered, not a remake

Final Fantasy VIII is finally getting Remastered, not a remake

Astute gaming industry observers not familiar with the Final Fantasy series might notice something strange in Square Enix's latest movements. Over the years, it has made nearly all of its titles available on mobile and PC and those that aren't fit to be ported have received some slight brush up. That was true for almost all titles save for one: Final Fantasy VIII. Without really giving any reason why, Square Enix is finally giving that installment some long-overdue attention in the Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, which, unlike Final Fantasy VII, is not a remake.

One of the headliners going into Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference this evening was undoubtedly the upcoming Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics. Square Enix saved the biggest announcement for last, closing its show by finally giving the game - which is simply called Marvel's Avengers - a full reveal. While we don't always expect to hear talk of release dates when a game has just been revealed, Square Enix surprised us there too.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 GPU, 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X CPU debut at E3 2019

E3 is naturally focused on all the new titles and updates to make gamers drool but, also naturally, those games are only made possible by the hardware that runs them. Game streaming services promise to make client hardware less relevant but, until that day comes, gamers will continue to need the beefiest components for the most demanding games. It's no surprise, then, that AMD is using that opportunity to reveal its combo of a new RDNA-powered graphics card and third-gen Ryzen desktop processor to promise the ultimate gaming platform for PC enthusiasts among the E3 2019 crowd.

Terraria’s massive Journey’s End update will finish eight years of content

Pretty much everyone who owns a gaming PC knows what Terraria is by now.
